Happy New Year Everyone! Welcome to Sacfit!

Still think it's too late to get that New Year's resolution going? Or too late to start a training program in time to get fit for Summer, or get ready for any number of late Winter and Spring running and walking events? 

Well, we've got great news for you- Starting a New Years Resolutions or a training program is technically valid until the last day in January. So you still have this weekend!

In that spirit, the Sacfit training program and team welcome you and are ready to get you moving forward toward any of your fitness goals you might have. And with our approach, you still have plenty of time to have success! 

So whether you're a couch potato ready to take that first step toward getting a little more fit, or interested in running (or walking) your first half marathon or an advanced runner looking to get blazing fast for a PR, we have a program just for you.

Our 16-week program is the longest (and least expensive) in the region, which allows for the most complete training and preparation to assure the best success and results for any number of Spring-time training goals you might have, including:

  • Half Marathon (First-time finish or PR goal)
  • Speed work and Marathon base building
  • 5K, 10K
  • General Fitness
For those with a race goal in mind, our target race is the American River Parkway Half-Marathon and 5K. This is our most popular training program and is perfect for all fitness levels - and most New Year's Resolutions! Our half marathon training program is specially tailored for the American River Parkway/5K.

BTW - for our more intermediate and advanced team mates, we also have a training program for the Shamrock'n Half Marathon. Two races under one great training program!
Sacfit - Experience a First-Class and Fun Training Program

Over the past 10 years, Sacfit has successfully training nearly 9,000 people whose goals ranged from qualifying for the Boston Marathon, running a sub two-hour half marathon to just getting off the couch and moving again and everything in between.

Our success is rooted in providing
a first-class training program and fun experience.

We start with you and your goals, then construct a training program geared toward your goals and along the way provide knowledgeable and friendly coaches to educate, support, motivate, and inspire you. Here are just a few program features to show you what we mean:

  • Personalized Training Program. We don't just have you "find" your pace. We conduct an initial pace and fitness assessment your first day out and then 7-8 weeks later, we do a more in-depth pace assessment to further refine and personalize your program. No other training group provides this level of personalized training. But this is the only way to maximize results and success, while minimizing injury.
  • No Training Alone. Tired of paying good money for a training group only to find that half way through the season you're training alone? At Sacfit, you always have friends to train along side you, as well as inspirational and supportive coaches who run or walk with you for the entire workout and for the entire season! 
  • Fully Stocked Aid Stations. As the workouts get longer and the weather warmer, aid stations are a key component to any training program. But a jug of Gatorade and gels with flavors you don't even like does not an aid station make. At Sacfit, we offer over six different kinds of fresh fruit, fresh-cooked potatoes, PB&J sandwich squares, tech-supplements, ice cold water and sport drink, just to name a few. We also provide a stock of ice-cubes to refill your water bottles.
  • Free Family Picnic Breakfast. Each season, we offer a free picnic breakfast to the team and their families or significant others. We want your home support network to get a little love from Sacfit and who doesn't love a picnic?! 
  • NO FUND-RAISING! All efforts are focused on you and your fitness goals.

What is Sacfit?

Sacfit is a running and walking team that provides individualized training programs for various distances. 

So whether you're a beginner or veteran runner or walker, our 16-week half marathon program will give you all the tools and training you need to assure you cross the finish line feeling strong and having fun, either to just finish or to improve your race time. 

And while we pride ourselves in providing great training programs, we are most proud of our reputation as being THE fun running and walking group! 

Why so fun? Well, one reason is our approach to training. We believe the best way to achieve any fitness goal, be it a half marathon, 5K or just getting out the door, is to provide creative and enjoyable training techniques in a non-intimidating, inspiring, and supportive environment. 

But the most important element is our coaches and members. We come from all types of backgrounds - from beginners to advanced and the young to young-at-heart. So whether you are a couch-potato, walker, casual jogger, or marathon veteran, you can count on finding a group that shares your abilities, interests, and goals.
